I finished off my only bottle of 5htp here are my experiences
Vivid and uncomfortable dreams occurred even when I took the pills early in the morning,
The pills were effective in sort of soothing depression, but i decided they are not for me. I noticed that they caused me to sort of loose my edge and be more okay with everything that was going on. Though after a few weeks this effect tappered off.
But they are definately worth a go for most people, it does cause a positive change in mood for sure. Just not what a mid 20s male would be looking for though, because i felt like it killed my drive to do anything
